KAVALAN Peaty Malt LMDW French Connections 52,4%
Single Malt Whisky, Taiwan / Yilan County, 70cl, Ref: 57782
Reserved for the Taiwan market, the Kavalans produced from peated malt (10 ppm) are rare. Which is why we are all the more proud to introduce you to this magnificent bottling whose high point is a perfectly orchestrated complicity between the peat and all of its other ingredients. Throughout the tasting, peat and smoke influence the edge of the flavour and aroma palette, covering the taste buds in animal and even medicinal notes, whilst the centre of the palate is occupied by abundant fruit, incredible heady florals and wonderfully noble spices. Amazingly, these two closely linked universes never collide.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
- Appearance : deep orangey copper.
- Nose : full-bodied, deep. From black fruits (grape, prune, blackcurrant) to heady florals (peony, carnation), the first nose is empyreumatic (burnt wood, rubber), animal (bacon) and ashy (soot). Allowed to breathe, it becomes more powdery (cocoa bean, ground almond) and spicy (candied ginger). A new fruity sequence then begins (raspberry, strawberry). In the background, enveloping aromas of flambéed banana, candied lime and black liquorice create an ensemble of fragrances of rare concentration.
- Palate : well-balanced, dense. The very smoky (bacon) attack is also rich (warm biscuit, crème brûlée). The slender mid-palate is intensely malty, animal (bresaola) and honeyed (lime blossom, heather). Gradually, notes of walnut husk constrict the taste buds, as mustard seed brings a delicately medicinal touch to the ensemble. The end of the palate is candied (clementine, orange) and herbaceous (mint, sage).
- Overall : long, elegant. The start of the finish prolongs the fruity and herbaceous sensation of the palate. With time, this breaks apart to make way for a very noble expression of precious wood, curry and cardamom. With its notes of candy floss and vanilla ice cream, the retro-nasal olfaction is a pure sweet treat. The empty glass is then empyreumatic (black liquorice, tar, papier d’Arménie).
- The brand
The Kavalan distillery is named after an ancient tribe that used to the live in the region, in the north-west part of the island of Taiwan. Founded by the King Car Group, Kavalan did not hesitate to call on the services of the best experts in the industry, declaring their intention from the outset to make a whisky of exceptional quality. It was thus with the help of Jim Swann that the distillery produced the first drops of its new-make on 11 March 2006 and brought its first whisky to the market in December 2008. By selecting the best barrels, Kavalan managed to produce a range of single casks (sherry, bourbon and port) in 2009, only three years after it began production, and has already won numerous medals at a variety of international competitions.
